There are 3 guitar layers in this song. Guitar 1 is a clean electric guitar that plays rhythm guitar throughout. Guitar 2 is a slide electric guitar that weaves in and out throughout the arrangement. Guitar 3 is a clean electric guitar that plays a few tasty leads in the tune.

The song starts off with quiet intro that sets the swampy, bluesy groove that the lyric story will tell. Then the band kicks in for verses featuring staccato punchy rhythms and the wide open chorus sections.

There's also a great slide guitar solo and a quiet outro that winds down the arrangement perfectly.

In the following lessons, we'll talk about open and barre chords, octaves, slide guitar, and some textbook country rock leads. We are in the key of E major, with a 4/4 time signature, at a tempo of 72 BPM.
